I believe the hostname is movies-uploads.archive.org, actually - the path is the directory you change to when you get into the site, and that should be left blank?

Try that.

Nope. Same popup. Requests a password, fails, comes up again, fails, and gives up.

Hm. I just tried ftp-ing to movies-uploads.archive.org with the name and pass as suggested, using SmartFTP on Windows, and it worked.

Why don't you try a trial version of a Mac prog such as Fetch - http://fetchsoftworks.com/ - and see if that'll work? Recommendations for good freeware Mac FTP software (with a graphical interface) from others also welcome.

Well, that didn't work, neither. And SFTP, meanwhile, works just fine with my regular host.

As near as I can figure, the hangup is that I end up with a logon with two @s in it -- "ridetheory@hotmail.com@movies-uploads.archive.org", and that can't be right, can it?

I hate to be a big baby, but is there any way to set up an account for "ridetheory" rather than "ridetheory@hotmail.com" so I could experiment to see if that's the hang up?

OR, is it possible for me to use my host at scribble.com to do all the dirty work somehow?

OR, just to be a REALLY big baby, could someone there at the archive go to the url (http://www.scribble.com/ridetheory/RobotLoveLG.mp4) and move the file into my account here, so I could proceed?

Thanks. Just looking for a workaround...

I grabbed the movie into your upload directory, so you _should_ be able to process it now yay.

You could use me%40blah.com@movies-uploads.archive.org

i.e. @ can be escaped with @
